Right of Passage to the Gentle Giants

Dear friend,

Hope you have been keeping well!

We are glad to share with you the updates for the project ‘Help save elephants in India’. Thank you so much for supporting this project and for your generous donation to the appeal on GlobalGiving platform.

The updates for today are about activities supporting ‘Right of Passage’; which is one of the flagship projects of Wildlife Trust of India (WTI). WTI has been working to secure the wildlife corridors through the ‘Right of Passage’ project to ensure uninterrupted movement of elephants and other wildlife species between key habitats and protected areas. The wildlife corridors are linear strips of land connecting two or more, otherwise fragmented, forest patches.

Along with forest departments and partner NGOs, WTI teams are working to protect 55 corridors across 5 regions (North-Eastern India, Southern India, Central India, North Western India and Northern West Bengal). We are working with a network of regional organisations and individuals called ‘Green Corridor Champions (GCCs) that work at the grass root-level and are involved in the protection of wildlife corridors within their regions. The GCCs help us in protecting the corridors and monitoring corridor usage by wild animals, doing policy advocacy and for spreading awareness on the importance of corridors among the local population.

12th of August, every year, is celebrated as the World Elephant Day. On this day, GCCs in Uttarakhand and Tamil Nadu organised awareness events including bike rallies, painting competitions, webinars and road shows across the two states. The events were extremely successful where around 500 people took part in the celebrations. All this could be made possible with your support.

Once again, thank you so much for your generous support in our endeavour to provide ‘Right of Passage’ to the gentle giants. We will be soon back with more updates. Till then, take care!

With regards,

Team WTI
